I guess this means the pink ribbons used by the Susan G. Komen foundation stand for "We support Abortions and Abortionists"?
"Komen drops plans to cut Planned Parenthood grants"
By DAVID CRARY
NEW YORK (AP) - "The Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast-cancer charity on Friday abandoned plans to eliminate grants to Planned Parenthood. The startling decision came after three days of virulent criticism that resounded across the Internet, jeopardizing Komen's iconic image.
""We want to apologize to the American public for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women's lives," a Komen statement said."
The apology is the clincher. "...saving women's lives". Among the millions of abortions worldwide every year, selective abortion to eliminate girls from being born is leading to crisis-level imbalances in the sexes in countries like India and China, according to The Economist, which rightly labels it gendercide.
Even in the United States, at least 50% of all 1 million abortions every year kill a little girl.
So be it. If that is what they want. I will no longer purchase any items with the pink ribbons on them, or participate in anything that funds the Susan G. Komen foundation. I'm sure my small purchases and local event contributions won't matter to the organization, but it is my choice.
Update: PjMom has a post about this, with links to several other commentaries, over at Political Junkie Mom: "Pundette: “Planned Parenthood must be obeyed.”
